Winner of a 2016 British Medical Association Book Award the nominating reviewer wrote:

“This is an exceptional book. I can honestly say that I certainly wouldn’t head out on an expedition without this book and I would question anyone who planned to do so. ....The Oxford handbook format really fits well to a book that fits in a pocket but provides the necessary information for almost any foreseeable, or unforeseeable, emergency in the wilderness.”
